Vacancies on the Technical Review Panel (TRP) arise annually. TRP members to fill these vacancies are selected from a pool of approximately 100 experts known as the 'TRP Support Group'. Recruitment for this Support Group typically occurs every two years to ensure that there is a robust pool of experts to draw on to fill TRP Member vacancies. TRP Members may only serve a term of up to four Rounds of proposal review. Due to the skills set and regional representation required at the time of selection, it is possible that candidates are successfully selected for the Support Group, but are not called to serve on the TRP.
The expertise of the Support Group is spread across HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, and health systems and cross-cutting disciplines. Balance in terms of gender, regional representation and a mix of sectoral experience are all taken into consideration.
The recruitment and selection of Support Group members is managed by the Portfolio and Implementation Committee (PIC) using an open, transparent and criteria-based process, through a public call for applications.
The Global Fund Secretariat contracts an external, independent company to accept and screen applications.
Advertisements are posted on the Global Fund and other website, and technical partners, Board members and TRP members are invited to solicit appropriate candidates.
The external company screens applications against set criteria to produce a shortlist for the PIC.
The PIC sub-working group (a ‘Pre-Selection Panel’) reviews the shortlist and make recommendations to the PIC and the Executive Director of the Global Fund.
The PIC and the Executive Director make recommendations to the Board regarding the Support Group membership, as well as TRP members to serve in the next Rounds-based review of proposals.
Board votes to approve the TRP members selected to serve each Round.
